This Easter, in THE SEASONAL HOME’s front garden, my giant eggs will be joined
by some friendly, yummy-looking bunnies… a PATCH ‘o PEEPS I just made!
I created 4 adorable Peeps, this year, to go along with my lavender one from last Easter (click here for last year’s post & directions).
If you’d like to make your own Patch ‘o Peeps, cut them out of a 36″ long x 12″ wide x 2″ thick piece of Styrofoam
(see my store, if you want to order my easy pattern).
They are instantly recognizable if you spray paint them in typical “PEEP” colors: yellow, aqua, pink and lavender, using Design Master paint.
Once they are painted & dry, cut & tie an 18″ length of Easter ribbon (into a bow) around each of them.
Finally, insert a 5/16″ wooden dowel (cut in half) from the DIY store, into 2 holes, you will create (using the wooden dowel),
underneath each Peep. Insert the dowels carefully, straight & apx. 3-4″ deep & make sure they are evenly spaced & lined up (horizontally).
Once the 2 wooden dowels are in place, your Peep can be placed in a garden or large planter pot to display for the holidays.
HINT: cut the dowel (in half) at an angle to create a pointed end for easier placement in the ground or a planter pot
(see photo below to view apx. placement of wooden dowels).
Now, I have a group of 5 for THE SEASONAL HOME’s yard!
And as soon as my neighbors saw them, they loved them & wanted their own.
So, it looks like we’re going to have a Street ‘o Peeps! (LOL)
And if you’d like to own this pattern, be sure to check out my SHOP!
Here’s how they look with my giant eggs in the “Easter Garden”…
By the way, Mother Nature rain tested these for me today and they held up great!
And in case you’re a visual learner (like me!) here’s my new video… showing you how I create this cute bunny in 30 minutes:
Happy Easter and Enjoy the Creativity!
